Drama teachers everywhere enjoyed Ms. Johnson’s first toolkit for the theatre arts so much that she wrote another one! While the first book focuses on everything about a complete stage production, this one covers every aspect of classroom theatre arts. Students will learn group activities, improvisation, technical theatre, choral reading, mime, stage fighting and more. The book includes a step-by-step 10-day assignment using monologues for character development and a unit that teaches students how to write their own show. Examples are provided with illustrations, photos, and proven ideas. Reproducible forms, tests, and handouts are also provided together with a list of additional resources. Both beginners and seasoned drama directors will find this book to be an invaluable aid. As with the original book, it will banish your stress and guarantee your success.

Education – Politics Aside: Our Children and Their Teachers in Score-Driven Times

Politics Aside: Our Children and Their Teachers in Score-Driven TimesPolitics Aside
By Lesley Koplow
Publisher: Outskirts Press
ISBN: 978-1478729808
Published: January 2014
Pages: 130
Genre: Education
Formats Available For Review: print, kindle or pdf

This book is a “must read” for parents and teachers who are concerned about our current education policies and how they affect our youngest students. Lesley Koplow brings the experience of being a young child, a young child’s parent, or a teacher of young children to life in an era when public elementary schools are besieged by pressure to “win the race”. Anyone who wonders what happened to nurturing early childhood and early grade classrooms that stimulate the young child’s curiosity, creativity and quest to discover meaning will find the answer here. Advocates for the young child’s right to a supportive, meaningful, relationship- based learning environment will find a powerful ally, and access to research revealing the score-driven approach to education as antithetical to a healthy learning process. Politics Aside supports the fight for dynamic education and authentic assessment in the early grades, and may help us garner the strength to “push politics aside” and make room for classrooms that feed our children’s minds and hearts.
